Gas theory

In physics, gas theory refers, generally, to the collected theories on the thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and kinetic theory of gas particle systems by Austrian physicist Ludwig Boltzmann, inclusive of subjects such as H-theorem, Boltzmann chaos assumption, among others. In 1895, Boltzmann collected his various articles, written over the last three decades, into the form of a unified lecture on the subject of what he called ‘gas theory’, publishing them in two parts, 1896 (part one) and 1898 (part two), under the title “Lectures on Gas theory” or Vorlesungen uber Gastheorie.
